day school & drop-in child care

enrollment process

Once you’ve toured kaleidokids child care center and made the decision to have your child attend our Bucktown, Chicago location, next steps include the following:

Step 1)  Fill out and return the child care application form

Step 2)  We will confirm if space is currently available. If space is not available, we can place your child on the wait-list until a spot opens up

Step 3)  Once acceptance has been confirmed, complete all kaleidokids child care enrollment forms and send along with the registration fee

Step 4)  Last step is to pay the registration fee and tuition* (payment must be received within one week of notification of acceptance). Please note: tuition payment at KALEIDO*KIDS is made one month in advance, so your first payment will include the current month (prorated if applicable) as well and the following month. So, for example, if you register October 10, your first payment will include the prorated tuition for October as well as the payment for November

Step 5)  Submit child’s DCFS health exam form completed by their physician, along with proof of MMR immunization

Step 6)  Submit a copy of your child’s birth certificate

Please note:

  • * Tuition payment does not apply for those children signing up only for drop-in child care
  • All enrollment forms, health evaluations and birth certificate must be completed and turned into kaleidokids child care center before the child’s first day of attendance, per Chicago, Illinois DCFS licensing rules. NO EXCEPTIONS.
